1  First time using a Jig in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Margarita Miss on: August 03, 2007 06:33:58 AM
I made this bracelet using 20 gauge silver wire and a jig. Since the wire flowers were a bit uneven, I decided to use amethyst chips instead of perfect little round amethyst beads in keeping with the naive look. I hammered each of the flowers before connecting them with jump rings. Unfortunately, between hammering and trying to flatten the wire with pliers, I managed to break more than one of the amethyst centres.

2  Wire Wrapped Paua Shell in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Margarita Miss on: June 25, 2007 02:51:43 PM
I got lots of advice on what to do with paua shell on the discussions board.  Apparently the shell dust is highly toxic when inhaled so you wouldn't want to drill a hole in it.  This wire wrap process was really quick and easy.

3  Crochet Wire Necklace & Bracelet in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Margarita Miss on: June 06, 2007 05:41:29 PM
I've been wanting to try this for a while.  I used gold 28 gauge wire, a size 1.75 mm. crochet hook and some glass chips in 2 shades of green.  Simply chain 4 strands for each and then weave them together.  I finished them off with toggle clasps. I think if I made it again, I'd only use 3 strands for the necklace. I'm not much of a crocheter - chain st. is really the only crocheting I can do.  For more detailed pics see my blog:  http://everythingshunkydory.blogspot.com/2007/03/crocheted-wire-necklace-and-bracelet.html

4  Gorgeous Paua Shell - what to do with it ??? in Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions by Margarita Miss on: June 04, 2007 01:52:28 PM
A friend brought some gorgeous Paua Shell back from New Zealand.  I'm not sure if the pink-peachy shell is paua as well.  Now the question - What to do with it?  I'd like to do something really nice with it.
These photos don't really do it justice.  For better photos click here:  http://everythingshunkydory.blogspot.com/2007/06/paua-shell.html

When we were on vacation in Holguin, one of the guards made these for us out of palm fronds.  He tried to teach me how, but I was under the influence of the tasty margarita, so sadly I didn't pick up the method.

6  Re: Entrelac Scarf in SWS in Knitting: Completed Projects by Margarita Miss on: March 05, 2007 07:56:44 AM
I've got a question about blocking for those who used SWS.  Did you do a full soak of your scarf and then pin it into place or did you pin it into place first and then just lightly spray it with water?
I also wanted to thank tragicheroine for getting this started.  This scarf pattern never appealed to me until I saw yours and like many of you said, it's like SWS was created especially for entrelac.
I've started mine in Natural Earth, but after seeing knittastic09's spumoni scarf, I know I have to make one in that colourway too.
This is one of the most fun things I've knit in a long time!

I finished my branching out a few weeks ago and just now noticed your knit-a-long so I thought I'd post.  I love seeing how differently everyone's turn out.  I used a mohair blend and size 6 mm. needles and did 25 repeats of the lace pattern.  I can't believe how much the look and the length of this scarf changed after I blocked it.

I've started knitty's heart scarf as well.  I'm using a mohair blend.  It's a fairly easy lace pattern to memorize and it's knitting up very quickly.  I think it'll look much better after it's blocked but here's the wip:

I've decided I'm no longer going to avoid acrylic either.  I ended up using the Red Heart for a sort of cabled scarf.  I love the colours and the scarf is the same on both sides - and it's really soft!

10  Mystery yarn - what the heck is it? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by Margarita Miss on: November 01, 2006 07:29:08 AM
I thought if I posted a photo of the yarn I'm working with, someone might recognize it.  I can't even tell what the fibre content is.  I got 3 large skeins of it.  It's nice and soft and I plan to knit a scarf and mittens.  Any tricks for determining whether there's wool or other animal fibre in it or if it's just plain old acrylic?
